Mozilla/Firefox Search plugin for Archive.org (supports sidebar)
made this last night. would appreciate any feedback. Wink

Search for anything on the archive and it gets sorted by popularity/most downloads. This sort option is not available on regular searches.

http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html?submitform=Find&;category=29 (presently it shows as no. 2 on the list, if you dont see it just search the page for archive)

Thanks!


Firefox users, you will need to install the firefox sidebar if you want that functionality. Though search plugin will work without it as well.

Months later, I find this plugin indispensable for some of the searches I do! Besides popularity, a key aspect is that it naturally takes email addresses (if I'm looking for items all by one uploader, who I know). I have trouble with email addresses going into IA's regular search box.

Thanks a ton! :)

(Edit: in the site's search box, enclose an email address in parentheses to search it.)
